Word on the street is an application for a new a Dunkin Donuts has been filed for a lot on West Broad and Mill River streets formerly occupied by a fence-installation company.
The thing about Dunkin Donuts is that, well, it kinda sucks. The coffee’s bad and so are the donuts.
Please don’t put Stamford’s 12th DD franchise next door to my apartment building.
Stamford’s Planning Board will take up the matter on October 21, and I hope this proposal gets nixed. Traffic is already heavy on this stretch of West Broad, which connects the much of the West Side and Hubbard Heights with downtown. With only one forward travel lane at the intersection, which is often backed up going either way during peak hours, this could be a nightmare.
I’d hate to see a situation, like with the Donut Delight on Hope, where caffeine-seeking patrons are backing up traffic trying to turn into the parking lot.
The truth is the lot is positioned so awkwardly in relationship to the intersection that I’m not sure what could possibly work here. Certainly not a Dunkin Donuts.
